Latest Interview

higgins2Polly Higgins, lawyer for the Earth, speaks with Silver Donald Cameron in this exclusive Green Interview about the concept of ecocide and how she is trying to make it a new UN recognized crime against peace just like crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide. Ecocide is damage, destruction or loss of ecosystems such that peaceful enjoyment of a territory by the inhabitants is severely diminished or lost and that includes all the inhabitants not just the human ones.

Film and Book

For the last four years, the Green Interview team has been working on a set of films and a book about environmental rights, all based in the Green Interviews themselves. The details are at www.GreenRights.com – and we’re almost done. The last components are a full-length documentary film, GreenRights: The Human Right to a Healthy World, and a companion book.The film will be fabulous; if you liked Defenders of the Dawn, you’re going to love Green Rights.

The book is Warrior Lawyers: From Manila to Manhattan, Attorneys for the Earth. It contains a 13,000-word essay (which has drawn rave reviews from advance readers) plus carefully-edited interviews with 15 amazing lawyers from nine countries. It too will be finished by the end of June, and will be published by TheGreenInterview.com. You can pre-order it from Silver Donald Cameron’s website, here.

Promotion

Silver Donald Cameron and his wife, Marjorie Simmins both have new books this fall. They’ll be promoting the books and screening the film in October when they make their way across the country in a motorhome, with many stops along the way. There will be preview screenings in Antigonish and Halifax, NS, but the grand premiere will take place October 5 in Ottawa. The tour will stop at at several universities in southern Ontario, details TBA, before moving on to Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Brandon, Regina and Calgary en route to Vancouver, arriving late October and staying for the winter.

 The David Suzuki Foundation is planning to sponsor and help organize some events in BC over the winter, and the film will probably also be presented at the Public Interest Environmental Law Conference, held in February in Eugene, OR, which has been called “a Woodstock of public interest environmental lawyers.”

New Green Interview web site

The long-term benefit from all this activity will be, we hope, a great increase in subscriptions to www.TheGreenInterview.com which will allow us not only to continue, but to grow. Anticipating a lot more traffic, our web wizards have been rebuilding the site, making it much cleaner, more dynamic, and far more friendly for both for our visitors and for our own team. If you’re reading this, the site is up and running — and we’d love to hear what you think of it.

Stay tuned! It’s going to be a busy and interesting summer, and a very exciting fall.

The right to breathe. The right to clean water. The right to wholesome food.

Air, water, food – these are the sources of life. Without them, we die. And in most nations – more than 180 nations, in fact – citizens are legally entitled to these essential elements of life.

But not in Canada or the United States. And that’s what the GreenRights multi-media project is all about: extending our understanding of environmental rights – green rights – and also showing the dramatic impact of those rights in other countries. Because green rights are among our most powerful tools for protecting and repairing the natural world.

Exercising those rights, dedicated citizens and brilliant lawyers are cleaning the beaches of Manila Bay and the air of Amsterdam. They’re restoring the Riachuelo River in Buenos Aires, the Ganges in India. They’re holding oil companies to account in Brazil and Ecuador. And in the US and Canada, they’re fighting to secure these rights for all of us.

These are great human stories – stories of passion and courage, David and Goliath stories, stories of parents and grandparents battling on behalf generations not yet born.

This whole idea started out with the process of asking assembly members what is the country you dream of? And that country was a country where life was respected in all its forms, where people were respected in all its forms.
